Weekly Report Feb 10

It’s now down to the finals in both Pennant sections. To those who made it through our very best wishes for the finals, and to those who didn’t, big thanks from all at YMGCR for representing us so capably during the season. It has been so, so hot, and this has put a great deal of pressure on everyone. Don’t forget that those still bowling will need your support, so watch the notice board for upcoming matches and venues.

End of Season Breakup

Our club will again be holding the season Breakup at the home of Kurt and Marj Bleckwehl. The date is Sunday, March 17th, and a Green Theme Day is being planned.

Further details and attendees list is on the notice board, so please put this date in your diary. The day is free, and you only need to bring a salad or sweet of your choice to share.

Barefoot Bowls

Region/State Events 

Champion of Champions …. Unfortunately Laureen Smith and Ray Irvine were not successful in reaching their respective Grand Finals.

Men’s Pairs … Peter Velardo and Les Spencer were unlucky in their Grand Final.

We are so proud of their efforts, and congratulate them all on their great achievements in these events.


How many of you have noticed our new windsock? Made in our Club colours, it is a huge improvement on the previous old battered and torn one the wind from any direction blew right through. Thanks to the organising guys.
